    Due to sit my Navy recruit test in a couple of days for Warfare officer. However, also seriously considering applying for the RAF as an intelligence officer... is it possible to do so? Is it advisable?



    ... How long would I be waiting if I decided to end my application with RN and pursue RAF instead?

    Possible? Of course.

    Advisable? Well, you wouldn't only ever apply for one job at a time in any other industry, would you? As long as you can keep the details in you head, explain yourself, know the environments, no real reason why not.

    How long would you be waiting? How long's a piece of string? Can take anything from 3 months to a year to go through all the hoops - assuming you pass every stage first time, which is by no means a given.

    But wouldn't the guys at the AFCO question my commitment to either force if they see me coming in for the navy one day and the RAF the next?
